  • You gotta be fortunate, you gotta be lucky now
    I was just sitting here thinkin' good and bad
    But I'm the kind of woman that was built to last
    They tried erasing me, they couldn't wipe out my past
    To save my child, I'd rather go hungry
    I've got all of Ethiopia inside of me
    And my blood flows through every man
    In this Godless land, that delievered me
    I've cried so many tears even the blind can see

    This is a woman's world, this is my world
    This is a woman's world, for this man's girl
    There ain't a woman in this world, not a woman or a girl
    That can't deliver love, in a man's world

    I've born and I've bread, I've cleaned and I've fed
    And for my healing wits, I've been called a witch
    I've crackled in the fire, and been called a liar
    I've died so many times I'm only just coming to life

    This is a woman's world, this is my world
    This is a woman's world, for this man's girl
    There ain't a woman in this world, not a woman or a girl
    That can't deliver love to a man's world

    And my blood flows
    Through every man and every child
    In this godless land that delivered me
    I've cried so many tears even the blind can see

    This is a woman's world, this is my world
    This is a woman's world, for this man's girl
    There ain't a woman in this world, not a woman or a girl
    That can't deliver love in a man's world
